About Athlone Boat Club

Founded in 1837 Athlone Boat Club is one of the oldest rowing clubs in Ireland. The club is steeped in tradition and has played a leading role in the sporting history of the town. We are located on the banks of the River Shannon beside Custume Barracks.

Our club caters for oarsmen and oarswomen of all ages from Junior to Masters and has a proud history at National and International level.


With the recent delivery of a new recreational boat we have introduced leisure rowing in the club and hope to develop same in tandem with competitive rowing.
